Question about Frigidaire FAC126P1 wall/window Air Conditioner
A 110 air conditioner would only use 1/2 of the available 220, so , the answer is yes, with a great BIG CAUTION!!!!!
You have to know how to safely wire in the appropriate plug.
- 220 usually will have 4 wires: Red, Black, White, and Green.
You get 220 between the red and black, the White is available for 110 to drive a fan or whatever.
- 220 sometimes only has 3 wires: Red, Black, and green
Here you have 220 with no 110, like a baseboard heater.
- 110 has 3 wires: RED OR BLACK, White, and Green.
You get 110 between the Red or Black and the white.
The White is called Neutral.
Do not use the green wire as a neutral if there is no white.
The green wire is a ground and is for safety purposes.
PLEASE!!!! If this is not perfectly clear and within your ability, DO NOT TRY TO WIRE IT! Get someone who is trade certified to help you. Also, don't even think about messing with the wiring unless the circuit breaker is turned off..

Before you damage your equipment, or even worse electrocute yourself, seek the advice of an electrician. From the unit your describe (window air conditioner) I doubt you are going to have a 4 prong 220V outlet available to tap one side off. This being the fact, if you adapt and plug into a 3 prong 220V outlet, all the smoke is going to leak out of your air conditioner, and there is no way to get it all back in. In other words - proceed with caution and seek professional help.
